Here are some links to interesting articles I found on the web this past week.

Fitbit Recall

The Fitbit Ionic has been overheating and burning people. Please go to the official recall page if you own a FitBit Ionic. Even if the smartwatch/smart tracker has not been heating up or burning you, I would not mess around with this kind of issue. Go and turn it in before you or someone else gets hurt.

New Wi-Fi Standard

I just got upgraded to Wi-Fi 6, and Wi-Fi 7 is already around the corner. Technology marches on along with new IEEE standards! Here's to hoping they keep releasing Wi-Fi standards that are easy to describe to non-techies.
